    96 Explorer headlights won't turn off.

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm looking for the physical location of those relays. Any idea on where they are?

    96 Explorer headlights won't turn off.

    I searched and found several threads detailing the same problem, but none of them had the solution. I came home yesterday at noon on a bright sunny day and noticed my headlights were on. I waited for awhile to see if they would turn off but they never did (at least not until the battery...

    How many miles on your 2ND GEN EX?

    It's not just the 95-96 OHV, my '94 had 337K when I traded it in. I thought the dealer would send it straight to the crusher, but I saw it driving around 5 years later. My '00 (OHV V6) is definately down on power at 300K, but still burns no oil. Seems ike it will continue to run for as long...

    Hydraulic Clutch keeps getting air in it

    410, thanks again for the reply, I appreciate you talking this over with me. Is that 1/8" of play still about right for when the slave is connected or will it be a bit more? I understand the theory, and I pretty much did exactly what the video showed and it didn't help. That tells me the air...

    Hydraulic Clutch keeps getting air in it

    Thanks! It's a Rockwell Jawhorse with the welding attachment. It comes in handy for a lot of things! One of these: https://www.amazon.com/Rockwell-RK9002-JawHorse-Sheetmaster-Workstation/dp/B005BTLXI8/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1538052876&sr=8-4&keywords=jawhorse and one of these...

    Hydraulic Clutch keeps getting air in it

    Thanks for the reply. I tried your trick and it didn't really work. I ended up taking it out and bleeding it like this. I did forget to replace the o ring, but this time I got it. How much should I be able to push in the push rod? With the line disconnected I have a little less than 1/8" play...

    Hydraulic Clutch keeps getting air in it

    Having trouble with a hydraulic clutch on a '94 Explorer Sport. The throwout bearing went out so I pulled the trans and replaced the clutch and slave cylinder. Put it all back together, bled it and it seemed to work fine. Couple days later, it wasn't releasing, so I bled it again. Again it...

    Did you find a solution? I'm having a similar problem with an '07 Mountaineer.

    2006 explorer SJB fuse blown, now windows,wipers,radio, and sunroof stay on

    Did you guys ever find a solution? I'm having a similar problem with my son-in-law's 07 Mountaineer. He tried to give someone a jumpstart and wasn't able to start the dead car. Someone else jumped the guy and he went on his way. The next morning his battery was dead. We took a look at it an...

    '96 Explorer AWD Front driveshaft vibration

    I am having getting a vibration in the front driveshaft that is driving me crazy. I have a '96 V8 Explorer with the double cardan front driveshaft. The vibration is the worst during acceleration right before the transmission shifts. If you take the front driveshaft out, the vibration goes...

    Who makes a good driveshaft CV joint?

    The CV on my front driveshaft on my 97 Mountaineer went out. (Note I'm talking driveshaft CV, NOT half shaft). I read several threads on here about people who replaced theirs with the doorman part and the boot ripped within months. The reviews on Amazon for the doorman part say the same...

    Double Cardan or CV?

    My '96 AWD has a vibration and some slop in the front driveline. The '96 has a double cardan style where my '97 has a CV. Is the 97+ an upgrade or is it just cheaper to manufacture? Would it be worth it to convert? Is either style rebuildable? I know some of them are not.

    Key fob working intermittently

    That's the kind of info I was looking for, thanks!

    Key fob working intermittently

    I replaced the RAP on my mountaineer, but it was dead dead, not intermittent dead. That's why I thought it might be a wiring problem rather than a RAP problem. Does the RAP fail intermittently or does it just die when it fails?

    Key fob working intermittently

    The problem is not with the fob. Like I said up above, the fob will open my '98 Explorer without fail. I will check the codes though, didn't know that would be reported.

    Key fob working intermittently

    The key fobs for my 2000 explorer quit working. I replaced the battery and that didn't seem to help. I recently bought a 98 explorer that didn't come with any remotes so I decided to see if I could program the remote for it, and it worked. The next time I tried it with the 2000 it worked...

    How many miles on your 2ND GEN EX?

    My '94 had 337K on it when I traded it in. I screwed up installing the filter during an oil change at 140k and it leaked out all the oil. That screwed up the bearings. I went ahead and put new rings on it then and had the valves done while it was apart. That's the only thing I ever did to...

    Help! Dipstick bolt

    I finally got this done this weekend. I ended up taking the upper intake off, then I could reach down and get the bolt installed. What a pain!

    How many miles on your 2ND GEN EX?

    Wow! Which engine do you have? Did you have the valves redone when you did the head gaskets?

    Upper swing arm bolts

    I don't see how it would make a difference, they appear to be symmetrical. I was going to do just that, but it already had the kit installed.
